The original sights the PPQ came with were great and I didn’t have any problems with them. The only reason I thought to switch them out for night sights was because I wanted the PPQ to become my main carry. My husband ordered the Trijicon night sights for me and as soon as they arrived I went ahead and put them on.
I used TheYankeeMarshal’s instructional video here on YouTube.
In a previous post I had mentioned how excited I was to take these Trijicon night sights out for a spin. But after having gone to the range this week I have mixed feelings about them. I figured the orange front sight would be so great but once I got into my lane and lined up the sights, there was such a bad glare! I tried moving around and slightly adjusting the way I was lining them up but getting rid of it proved to be difficult. I know in well lit areas I would have to make a slight adjustment but I wasn’t expecting such a drastic difference. After I got home I thought—well, they are “night” sights so technically I’m not exactly using them in the most apt environment.
But what do I do then? If I want to use this gun as my main carry and night stand gun how can I get the best of both worlds? I’d be kind of bummed if I ultimately decided to put the original sights back on. Consequently I want to practice with the night sights more before I come to any decision. I’m wondering if after maybe a few more trips to the range I will be able to adapt and become accustom to it.
On a brighter note, I did turn out the lights in my bedroom to test them out. They worked beautifully. It’s glow is very clear and crisp; I was able to line up the sights with ease. I guess the purpose of them being used as night sights are pretty accurate.
Look for updates in the future about whether or not I’ll keep them on. Thanks for reading! 🙂
